Unfortunately we were only able to capture half of the conference opening keynote. 

Tracy Kronzak, Senior Manager, Partner Success at Salesforce.org will share reflections on connecting the hard work of technology to the work of the heart of mission-driven communities. Technology strategy requires us to not only know the why of what we’re executing, but the why of what we’re here in service of, and delivery in support of peace and justice. “The greatest act of love is to be of service to another human being. We begin our journey at nonprofits because we act from the heart, and the execution of our technology becomes the new territory of the heart – worth the time, thought, and certitude that all matters of the heart engender.”

How Do You Manage a Remote Team and Retain the Best Talent?

Recorded at The Digital Nonprofit conference, June 11, 2018.

Digital transformation sure sounds like fun… the same way bathroom renovations do. Then you start finding black mold and structural damage, and before you know it your place is stripped down to the studs and you’re booking a three-month stay in a Motel 6. Rob kicks off the afternoon with a bracing look at what we’ve let ourselves in for — as well as the surprising upsides of disruption.

ROB COTTINGHAM Principal, Social Signal

He’s the cofounder of Social Signal, the world’s oldest social media agency, where he worked closely with a wide range of nonprofits. Rob draws the Noise to Signal cartoon on life, work and business in an online world, and performs as a standup comic wherever there’s a stage and a mic.

Slides + Video: The Digital Nonprofit 2018

We created The Digital Nonprofit conference because after 10 years of meetups our members asked us for an event that was more “boss friendly”. A place where we could talk about digital strategy and transformation, not just practical hands-on technology implementation. But we didn’t anticipate the hunger for a community-driven #Tech4Good conference. Even as we grew from 80 attendees to 225 we’ve continued to sell out every year. So thank you for your support! It means so much because as volunteers your encouragement is what motivates us to keep going!

The expert presenters have generously allowed us to share their slides – and we professionally recorded half the sessions, with the other half available through recorded livestream video.

Enjoy! We hope to see you at the 2019 edition of the conference and at our free monthly meetups.

Digital Teams in 2018: The New Landscape of Digital Engagement

See Jason Mogus at The Digital Nonprofit conference on June 11. Tix on sale now!

The state of digital teams inside our nonprofits often reflects deeper issues of culture and structure and how well adapted our institutions are to today’s communications landscape. So what’s going on with digital teams today? What team structures, roles, and behaviours are producing the best outcomes? Are we getting better at cross-silo and cross-channel communications? Are we set up to really deliver on the promise of digital engagement?

Jason Mogus has been a digital structure geek for two decades, and his firm recently released their 3rd report on Nonprofit Digital Teams. He will share highlights from the report, trends over time, and war stories working inside institutions of all shapes and sizes. Then you’ll get a chance to solve for digital structure issues at your organization in real time!

Key takeaways from the 2018 Digital Teams Report include:

  • When digital leads, we win. Having digital leaders on senior management teams and shaping new campaigns and initiatives is now proven to lead to more successful digital programs
  • Is engagement just a word? The vast majority of respondents don’t measure engagement and lack dedicated staff + budget to lead it, showing engagement is still more of a concept than a deeply valued reality
  • Distributed digital skills leads to better programs. We found teams with the highest performance digital programs are overwhelmingly using the hybrid team structure model
  • We still struggle with structure. Three-quarters of teams have been re-structured in the past 3 years, yet only 10% find their structure to be highly effective. That’s a lot of painful change leading to uncertain results

Covering topics ranging from where digital teams now live, today’s key roles, shifts in team structures, sources of cross-departmental tension, and how we develop digital leaders, we offer an insight for each data point, and include four recommendations for helping our organizations become more effective by building better digital teams.
